Syed Atiq ul Hassan: September the Eleven


September the Eleven


By Syed Atiq ul Hassan on the 5th Anniversary of 9/11 (2001)

I share the grief and pain of Americans
Who lost their loved ones on September the Eleven

I expect Americans to share the sufferings of Iraqis and Afghanis
Who lost their brothers and sisters since September the Eleven

I condemn terrorism that exposed on September the Eleven
I also declaim worldwide hatred launched since September the Eleven

I oppose WMD being developed by Iran
I also reprove WMD warehoused by the First World

I understand feverishness of Americans since September the Eleven
I also sympathize with tortures to others since September the Evelen

I raise voice against the human crimes in the world ...
I also like Americans to judge the human abuses in Guantanamo Bay

I respect the freedom and sovereignty of Americans
I hope Americans would respect the liberty and independence of others

I pray for peace, harmony and equality
But I know these will not be delivered by terror AS

Terror cannot be eliminated by Terror
